LIGHT WELL stands out here. The 160,000gns gelding shaped well enough on his debut over 1m4f at Doncaster in June and should appreciate today's longer trip. Maher went as close he's ever gone when runner-up at this track to the progressive All My Heart three weeks ago and he's likely to be thereabouts, along with Rien Ne Vas Plus. The latter was just beaten over 2m at Kempton last time, while Hidden Valley has been placed over shorter trips on Polytrack and makes most appeal of the remainder.
